The Vipp story began in 1939 when founder Holger Nielsen designed a pedal bin that still very much looks like what it does today – a large foot for stability, a domed steel lid that is easy to clean, and a rubber ring at the base for protection of the floor. These highly pragmatic and functional features remain to be the points of inspiration for all Vipp products to this day. Dovetailing from Vipp’s original ergonomic star, the company has gone on to design kitchen modules, furniture, lighting, textiles, and accessories for both the kitchen and bathroom.
